The difficult things are what make life interesting.
Doing something different can sometimes be uncomfortable. The truth is most of us given the chance want to be normal, like everyone else. We feel like standing out in a crowd, letting others really see us for who we are is too intimidating. We don’t want to share our whole selves with everyone, so we hide behind our “normal” masks and hope and pray that no one can see through the facade.
But is that what we really want? There is only one us. Even twins and other multiples have different things about themselves. Normal is a setting on a washing machine, it has nothing to do with us as people. We each have something that excites us, that makes our face light up when we talk about it, our eyes sparkle, we get this goofy grin on our face and we could sit for hours talking about it. That’s not something I’d consider normal, but extraordinary. It’s our true passions coming to light, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact we should take our passions out for a spin more often.
It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about what you’re passionate about. It’s okay to let your freak flags fly, when it comes to your passions. You would be amazed at what some people are passionate about, and they have actually turned that off the wall passion into a lucrative business. Someone in Florida had a love of mermaids and photography and now she sets up scenes and has costumes for her clients to dress in and she takes mermaid pictures for a living, that is all she does and she makes somewhere in the mid five figures a year.
I mean think back to the eighties. Would there have been Madonna? Boy George? Cher? Or even back when Cher was with Sonny on their tv show. These people stood out, let themselves be seen and dared to be different. And it’s something that you all can do too. All it takes is a Leap of Faith. Instead of saying “I couldn’t possibly” or “I can’t”, exercise your freedom and say “I can do this, I want to do this.”
